1. Open “DJohnson StAIR” folder
2. Select the PowerPoint Slide Show “DJohnson_StAIR_Project_Graphing”
3. NOTE: There are two video clips that you will need to download within the “DJohnson StAIR” folder: “slope” and “slope intercept form.” These two files do not play within the instructional resource but could be downloaded for viewing during the StAIR.

Discussion for Graphing Slope-Intercept Form Stand-Alone Instructional Resource
Lindsay Sanders (Teacher (K-12))
This resource is jam-packed with all the information that students needs to know about slope-intercept form. The instructional design of this StAIR provides learning in various forms such as examples, videos, tutorials, animations and sound, practice problems, and applets. It was easy to navigate and the author gave clear instructions on what to click, where it would take you, and what it would show you. The design and images were also very appealing, especially to the audience that this was created for. Because graphing in slope-intercept form is a large concept, the only thing I could think you might want to consider is breaking this resource into separate resources in case students get overwhelmed with the amount of slides and content or even assign students to view only a portion of the resource. However, having it all together would be a great review resource for students before being assessed on the concept. Great job!! I love it!
I couldn't get some of your videos to work.
Kevin Karkkainen (Teacher (K-12))
What a fantastic resource. I wish I had something like this when I was learning slope-intercept. This .pps was put together very well. The information was great and the question portion seemed like a great assessment of what students should have learned. You did a nice job of breaking up the information into managable parts. This isn't always an easy concept to grasp, but I think students will benefit from using this resource.
I didn't see any technical problems with this STAIR. Everything looked and functioned great.
Leslie Sniegowski (Teacher (K-12))
This is a great resource to show students how to recognize slope-intercept form and how to make graphs from slope-intercept form. I know from experience how much students struggle to understand how to grasp slope-intercept form, but this would be a great resource to allow students extra remediation. The resource allows students to learn the material first, then provides hints and tricks to remember the slopes or the formula, and lastly allows students time to practice their skills. I really liked the video links, especially the football one, that helps students understand the vertical intercept. Students are more likely to connect to ideas that they have a personal connection to and many middle/high school students connect with sports. This is a great connection that will help students understand how to determine the vertical intercept. Great use of sound effects and animations - the practice part is crucial for students to understand math and this resource does a great job of allow time for structured practice.
